Thursday of the Seventeenth Week in Ordinary Time

Saint Alphonsus Ligouri, Bishop, Doctor (1696-1787)

Readings of the Day
RB: Ch 50 Those Working at a Distance or Traveling
Mass: Ex 40:16-21, 34-38; Resp Ps 84; Mt 13:47-53

How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord, mighty God!

A prayer for today, one that could be used before a meeting or just before taking a few minutes for quiet and recollection, can be taken from the Gospel Acclamation at Mass.

Open our hearts, O Lord, to listen to the words of your Son.

I remember two professors I had in Rome, both Redemptorists. One taught "Specialized Morals: Familial Issues", the other "The Science of Christ According to Thomas Aquinas". May St Alphonsus Ligouri intercede for them and all Redemptorists.
